I have very mild cp, and I have really denied myself the independence of driving. However, I want to put all that behind me and learn.
I live in NJ, could someone tell me how I can go about getting my permit? Do I need to take a "handicap" test for it? The only difficulty I'm thinking I have is that I need to drive with my left foot, and the act of turning the wheel might need some exercise in, as in making right/left turns. I'm thinking this will be a matter of practice.
Also, very slight speech issue, which I think is more psychological as I do get breathy sometimes. I have read that this is more anxiety related though.
Do I need to mention any of this? Also, about private lessons, anyone familiar as to a type of driver's school that would better "cater" to my needs? And I think I might feel more comfortable with a woman driver - can I make this request? Please advise. Thank you
